DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The U.S. freestyle Olympic wrestling team will compete against an international squad next month in New York's Times Square.

USA Wrestling says a dual meet will be held on June 7 against a nation to be announced.

It's the second straight year the U.S. has hosted a wrestling match in Times Square. The U.S. beat Russia 5-2 in 2011 behind victories from Jordan Burroughs and Jake Varner, who are scheduled to return to New York.

A challenge featuring top U.S. wrestlers was held in 2010 on the USS Intrepid, an aircraft carrier docked on the west side of Manhattan.

The event will be part of a fundraiser for the Beat the Streets wrestling program for middle and high school students in New York City.
